Inspired by Deutsche Bank Death Spiral, European Banks Sink to Dec 24, 2018 Level – First Seen in 1995

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:

The benefit of NIRP: There’s hell to pay – even the ECB admits it.

European bank shares – which have been getting crushed and re-crushed for 12 years – are getting re-crushed again. On Friday, the Stoxx 600 Banks index, which covers major European banks, including our hero Deutsche Bank, dropped to an intraday low of 130.5 and closed at 131.2, thereby revisiting the dismal depth of December 24, 2018 (130.8).

Rockefeller Foundation: The Rise, Fall And Rebirth Of 100 Resilient Cities

by Laura Bliss, Technocracy News:

The UN’s term “Resilient” means anything you want: “improving mobility”, “breaking down structural racism”, “any social and infrastructural fault line”, “predictive analysis” and even weather forecasting. Thus, it is a catchall term for implementing the New Urban Agenda and the 2030 Agenda, aka Technocracy. ⁃ TN Editor

In late April, at a town-hall meeting in New York City, Raj Shah, the president of the Rockefeller Foundation, addressed the staff of 100 Resilient Cities. The nonprofit, launched by the philanthropy in 2013, has helped cities around the world plan for natural disasters and social shocks, especially the ravages of climate change.

As migrants arrive in Texas from the Congo, media buries the medical fact that Africans can carry Ebola without showing any symptoms

by Mike Adams, Natural News:

It is a medical fact that people of African descent have enhanced natural immunity to various viral infections, including Ebola. In fact, migrants from Africa may carry Ebola and show no symptoms whatsoever. This simple, irrefutable fact appears to be completely unknown to all U.S. doctors, journalists and CDC “experts” who claim Ebola can’t possibly be carried to the U.S. from Congo because, they often explain, nobody is showing any symptoms.

Yet it is a well-known medical fact that Ebola carriers from Africa may be entirely symptom-free. If you don’t believe me, go back to the June 27, 2000 article in the New York Times, authored by Lawrence K. Altman. The headline is, “People Carrying Ebola, in Some Cases, May Be Free of Symptoms.”

Gold Standard Coming Into View

by Jim Willie, Gold Seek:

A Perfect Storm is hitting the Gold market, with an internal factor (return to Quantitative Easing on steroids), an external factor (Shanghai Gold Exchange taking market share), and a systemic factor (Basel 3 Rule permitting Gold in account ratios). All three forces are positive in releasing Gold from the corrupt clutches of the Anglo-American banker organization. The Eastern Hemisphere has a planned coordinated and effective strategy to abandon the USDollar and to adopt the Gold Standard. It has happened first in the trade payment form, actually more like a global blossoming process. More progress can be inferred in its early stages. In the last ten years since the Lehman Brothers failure, all systems have undergone the same reckless treatment that the mortgage bonds endured. Slowly the realization is coming to the fore, stated by a few astute analysts. In the last decade, the US-UK bank management wing of the cabal has created the USTreasury Bond as the global subprime bond. This is the result of magnificent persistent QE abuse, hidden derivative activity to produce false bond demand, foreign dumping of USGovt debt securities, astonishing debt explosion, pilferage of foreign bond holdings, and wickedly false AAA debt rating.

Why Didn’t Mueller Investigate Seth Rich?

by Daniel Lazare, Consortium News:

The idea that the DNC email disclosures were produced by a hack — not a leak —makes less and less sense, writes Daniel Lazare.

After bungling every last aspect of Russia-gate since the day the pseudo-scandal broke, the corporate press is now seizing on the Mueller report to shut down debate on one of the key questions still outstanding from the 2016 presidential election: the murder of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich.

Think US Media Won’t Help Lead Nation Into War With Iran Based on Flimsy or False Intelligence? Looks Like They Already Are

by Jake Johnson, Jon Queally, Common Dreams:

“Do U.S. reporters, anchors, and editors really want more Middle Eastern blood on their hands? If not, they need to fix their rather credulous and increasingly hawkish coverage of Iran—and fix it fast.”

If there were any lingering hopes that the corporate media learned from its role in perpetuating the lies that led to the 2003 invasion of Iraq and would never again help start a Middle East war on the basis of false or flimsy evidence, the headlines that blared across the front pages of major U.S. news websites Thursday night indicated that such hopes were badly misplaced.

Corporations Suddenly Realize That Once-Coveted Millennials Are A “Screwed Generation”

0

from ZeroHedge:

Right now, millennials represent the largest single consumer group in the United States: they number 83.1 million and they represent a full quarter of the US population. When it comes to corporations targeting consumers, millennials are at the top of the list for those obvious reasons, according to a new article by Adweek. But now, generational expert Alexis Abramson, who has 25 years experience in the field, is claiming that corporations aren’t getting the ROI that they anticipated from millennials.

Keiser Report: Secret Bull Market in Gold (Ep1397)

from RT:

In the second half, Max interviews Michael Pento of PentoPort.com about the coming rate cuts and equity markets leading GDP rather than the other way around.

CNN’S CAMEROTA: ‘IT’S OUR JOB’ TO TEACH VIEWERS TO ‘SHUT DOWN’ CONSERVATIVE ARGUMENTS

from InfoWars:

Camerota was blind to the correlation between the DNC-funded Steele dossier and the situation Trump described during his interview

On Friday’s New Day, coverage again returned to a recent ABC News interview in which President Trump expressed a willingness to accept foreign information about political opponents. A panel of guests gathered around to spew their takes on the situation, with host Alisyn Camerota livid at Fox News and Republicans for pointing out that the Clinton campaign received dirt on Trump from Russia in 2016.

Clash of Civilizations 2.0

by James Corbett, The International Forecaster:

Readers will recall that last week’s edition of this column ended on something of an intellectual puzzler. To wit: If the Tiananmen Square Massacre narrative that is routinely used to demonize the Chinese government on the world stage is demonstrably wrong (even by the admission of US diplomats and BBC reporters), then why doesn’t the Chinese government say something?

As I concluded in “The Truth About Tiananmen“:

“This type of silence in the face of attack is unfathomable to the Western mind. When someone is spreading rumors and easily debunkable lies about you, you speak up. You set the record straight. You fight back. You do something . . . don’t you?”

Well, perhaps one key to unlocking this mystery is in the stipulation: The Western mind. We all understand that silence is consent and that anyone who remains silent in the face of accusations is thereby tacitly admitting to their guilt, right? But who is “we”? Does our shared understanding of the meaning of silence come from a specific cultural heritage? And if so, what is the shared understanding of the meaning of silence for the Chinese?

[WATCH] THE CRASH IS COMING: “IT’S NOT ‘DOOM & GLOOM’; IT’S REALITY”

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

Many Americans seem to think the alerting the public to the problems in the economy is “doom and gloom” and meant as “fear porn.” But regardless of your beliefs on the matter, the numbers show that a crash is coming, and that’s the reality, although a very grim one says Jeremiah Babe.

In a recent video, titled “THE CRASH IS COMING PREPARE – HOMELESSNESS CRISIS – LABOR FORCE WARNING – STOCK MARKET SURGES,” Jeremiah Babetalks about this very lackadaisical mentality much of the U.S. public is experiencing. Whether the public is unconcerned because of the mainstream media’s propaganda or political party blindness, it doesn’t much matter.
